Babymoon!

Teddy & I are going on a babymoon – 3 days and 2 nights in a beautiful hotel at the Jersey Shore, where I get to lay by a pool in my tent (AKA my maternity swim suit).  He booked a prenatal massage for me, and he’ll get a massage, too.  We’ll go out for … Continue reading

It’s not really accurate to say this is a recipe review, because I’ve been using this recipe for 2 or 3 years now.  But it’s definitely one of my favorite drink recipes and is in the fridge pretty much all summer, so I wanted to share the awesomeness. I found this vintage lemonade recipe on … Continue reading

Birth of Sloane

Lately I’m obsessed with this video.  It’s a home waterbirth, and it’s amazing, and it makes me cry every time I watch it. So you should watch it.  And I hope you love it as much as I do.
